My entry into the the field of dentistry began in 1998. I am grateful and appreciative for what I've learned and continue to learn. To me, it's more than just dentistry. It's getting the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and hopefully be a part of making their dental experience positive and uplifting. I am thankful to be part of Dr. Bickers dental team because he encourages me to grow and flourish by providing a wonderful work environment with state of the art equipment and training.
